This past Friday, the Walmart website made the SNES Classic available for pre-order to consumers. The problem was, the retailer said the pre-orders went up only due to a technical glitch and has since issued cancellations to everyone that made pre-orders.
"Thank you for your interest in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System - Classic Edition," Walmart.com senior director of customer care Deserie Dulaney said in the email. "As you are aware, this is a highly sought after console that will launch later this fall. Unfortunately, due to a technical glitch, the Super Nintendo Classic Edition was mistakenly made available last Friday evening ahead of the official release date. We, regrettably, will have to cancel this item on your order. We know that this is incredibly disappointing to you, and we're truly sorry for this mistake."

Thus far, Walmart was the only retailer in North America to even offer up the system for sale. No other retailer in the States has had the system up for sale yet. Amazon UK has offered the system for pre-order for some time now. However, they are limiting pre-orders to one unit per customer and have cancelled additional orders made by consumers.

The SNES Classic is slated to be released on September 29. If you're expecting Nintendo to have learned from their mistakes with the NES Classic supply, you may want to think again.
